Not exactly clear what the numbers and figures put out there by various scientific bodies actually mean? Want to get a more visceral sense of the scale of modern anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions?
Then I recommend that you take a look at the Carbon Quilt — a visualization resource created for just such a purpose.
As an interesting example of what the site offers, take a look at the image/tweet below — depicting London’s CO2 emissions next to a number of well-known landmarks.
